Since I know most of the people on Sleuth News are adamant about the upcoming second season of Westworld, you might enjoy a cool featurette released today that delves into the production design of the fantastical science fiction show. The featurette is told from the perspective of acclaimed set decorator Julie Ochipinti. Check it out below:
Season 2 of Westworld is set to premiere on HBO on April 22nd.
It may sound strange, but what I love most in this film is not the creature itself, but the atmosphere. Don’t get me wrong – the xenomorph’s design, the editing in the scenes it appears and their pacing are iconic, but for me it’s always been the atmoshere, the photography and the production designs that make this movie something sooo remarkable. It’s a believable world, full of details. A deadly one. With each view there are more of them to find. Here’s the first part of my favourite stills.
The giant and menacing spaceships…
To be continued.
A curious excerpt from an old Peter Jackson’s interview.
– If 20th Century Fox asked you to direct the next ALIEN movie, would you jump at the chance? I think you would do a great job.
– I was asked to direct Alien Resurrection but I passed. I just can’t get excited about doing an Alien film.
Some sources say the man owns an huge Alien Queen model in his collection though. That gives him some extra points.
”Photos of supposed UFOs abound. Most of the time they show dark stains or bright dots in the sky, of varying dimension and quality, which could be due to a lot of things: military aircrafts, weather balloons, birds, meteors, etc. Sometimes the UFO is well focused, but the flying saucer always looks suspiciously similar to a pan lid suspended from a thread or a lamp holder or a wheel cap thrown in the air. And of course today the possibilities for digitally retouching an image are endless.
What are lacking, however, are credible photos of the creatures that should be flying these UFOs—the actual aliens or extraterrestrials. It appears there are no more than fifty such photos shot in the past eighty years, but once you take out those plainly fake and the more suspicious looking ones all you are left with are about ten photos. These are, essentially, “mug shots” of wanted extraterrestrials. Here is my personal list of the best (or worst) photos of aliens.”
All of them are absolutely ridiculous, however, it’s curious that each of these stories got some notable popularity.
After all those loosy sequels… I am really looking forward to it.
I want to see this. It’s haunted me for years. What would have happened if James Cameron’s original Terminator films got a third installment? What would Cameron’s T3 look like? And now, the film is indeed moving forward, with Arnold Schwarzenegger confirming shooting to start this summer. This was after previous belief it would start in May (See the original announcement here). Schwarzenegger confirmed it though himself today with the following quote:
We are starting to shoot Terminator 6 in June to the middle of October, so I am in that. I am looking forward to coming back as the T-800 model. It’s gonna be great with Tim Miller as the director and Jim Cameron is kind of supervising the whole thing.
Untitled Terminator Reboot co-stars Linda Hamilton. It is directed by Tim Miller and is set to hit theaters July 26, 2019.
Freshly released ”Venom” trailer is such a bore… fuck me, with all the problems Sony has can’t it just make a cool teaser that’s actually exciting not somniferous?
But there’s a highlight… this fragment is just destined to become a meme. Maybe Tom Hardy will do the same for Sony what James McAvoy did for M. Night Shyamalan.
The film will be released on 05.10.2018 and features the incredible Michelle Williams as well (one of the best young actresses, in my mind. I love ”Blue Valentine”.).
Really looking forward to it. Venom has always been one of the most enigmatic and chaotic Marvel characters, and it really stands out of the crowd. I just hope it won’t have anything in common with the loosy 2007 version.
Something tells me that Emilia Clarke (and Woody Harrelson…) will be the best part of the movie.
So now Disney and Lucasfilm are really that desperate huh? Yeah…smart. Provide no marketing for Solo: A Star Wars Story…then start blasting audiences with promotion for the four months before the film hits theaters on May 25th. We got the Super Bowl TV spot yesterday (See it here). Then today we get not only a teaser trailer (See it here) but also character posters. Check them out below:
Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, and Paul Bettany. It is directed by Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Ron Howard.
It’s curious how changing just one detail completely turns upside down your perception of the image.
